Enjoy a sampling of books by UC Davis College of Letters and Science faculty. The Mughal Empire from Jahangir to Shah Jahan

The reign of Shah Jahan (1628–58) is widely regarded as the golden age of the Mughal empire, yet it is one of the least studied periods of Mughal history. In this volume (The Marg Foundation, March 2019), edited by Ebba Koch in collaboration with UC Davis history professor Ali Anooshahr, 14 eminent scholars present for the first time a multidisciplinary analysis of Shah Jahan and his predecessor Jahangir.
